Create a Cupcake Step it Up Swap

This was a super fun swap. The concept is to make a card with minimal supplies that is super cute to use for a Make & Take at a workshop, then to make a stepped up version to demonstrate at said workshop to show customers how you can "Step it Up" with a couple of embellishments or a technique. Love this idea!
I signed up for 3 groups. This is one of them.

Here is the Make & Take version.  Cute right. I am totally in a dovetails/banners phase. Love them! This card is cute, simple, and fast.
  • Stamps: Create a Cupcake
  • Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, Soft Suede, Early Espresso
  • Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Soft Suede, Whisper White, Brights DSP pack
  • Other: 1" circle punch, 1-3/8" square punch

 And this is the "stepped up" Demonstrate It version. I used the Cupcake builder punch to punch out the cupcake frosting images, popped the middle one up with a dimensional. Tied some Bakers Twine around the main image panel. I also added some Dazzling Details glitter glue to the sprinkles, and outlined the card base with a Signo white gel pen.
So the added elements are:
  • Cupcake builder punch   $16.95
  • Dazzling Details glitter glue  $2.50
  • Early Espresso Baker's Twine  $2.95
  • Stampin' Dimensionals  $3.95
Now, how fun  was that?! I think this kind of swap is a wonderful idea.
